Mini Cruises

If you're tempted by the thought of a short cruising break, or are new to cruising and are looking for an opportunity to try a cruise for the first time, what better way to test the water than on board one of Fred. Olsen's Mini Cruises. A quick break is always welcome, bringing with it a change of routine and the chance to see somewhere new.

Spend a few nights aboard one of our delightful cruise ships, and take the opportunity to rest and relax whilst also discovering fine cities that are closer to home. Setting off from the UK, you will enjoy the same friendly, attentive service, dining options and entertainment that are found on our longer cruise holidays.

With departures from your local port, there’s no need to fly or travel too far, so you can relax and enjoy the journey with ultimate peace of mind, knowing you’ll be taken care of from start to finish. Our Mini Cruises sail from Dover, Glasgow, Harwich, Liverpool, London Tilbury, Newcastle, and Southampton.

Leave day-to-day life behind and cruise to a selection of fine destinations on board our fleet of smaller-sized ships. Sail the picturesque River Seine to historic Rouen; explore Boulogne-sur-Mer – the ‘City of Art and History’; join the party in vibrant Dublin; uncover the architectural gems and elegant streets of Lisbon; visit charming Honfleur; revel in the Christmas spirit of three Irish cities; or venture into the unknown aboard Black Watch on our ‘Mystery Mini-Cruise’. There’s a lot to choose from – and the choice is all yours.

If you are thinking of booking one of our brilliant mini cruises, which are listed below, you may want to consider some practical cruise extras to make your experience as simple and safe as possible. We can organise hotels and other travel options on your behalf as well as travel insurance to give you complete peace of mind.
